BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 18.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed with a ridiculous amount of barley, World Wide Stout is dark, rich, roasty and complex. This Ageable Ale clocks in at 15-20% ABV and has a depth more in line with a fine port than with a can of cheap, mass-marketed beer.

70 IBU

2013 vintage poured into a Stone tulip glass. Yes, this beer is not cheap: either in price or in quality. I was hesitant about cracking open my first bottle as I had heard it was better "aged". Well, I decided to try one of my two '13 bottles now and I am not sorry.
This beer is complex, tasty and a very slow sipper. Enjoy the jet black appearance and dried fruit smell as you begin your journey. On my first sip I encounter raisins, coffee, char and a pleasant alcohol heat. The taste is complex and a delight for any imperial stout lover. Mouthfeel is full and sticky. This glass took me more than an hour to complete and as it warmed, I encountered more complexity and flavors. I have a 2009 bottle that I will try in a couple of weeks and compare to the one I just enjoyed. I am also on my way to purchase a few more bottles before they are gone. Price be damned! It is unique and delicious.
One of the better non BA stouts I've had.

12 oz. bottled 1/15/2014. Wow. How to even describe this... More like a liqueur than beer. Alcohol heat on the nose. Pours deep black with a dark tan head, moderate lacing. Tastes incredible, not as boozy as I had anticipated. Still a good amount of alcohol heat with dark roast, chocolate, toffee. Just so good.
